— S.T.A.F.F. Bots when being stunned.
In Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach, a large number of S.T.A.F.F. Bots can be found scattered around the Pizzaplex. S.T.A.F.F. Bots make up various jobs around the Pizzaplex, such as vendors, security staff and more.
Due to S.T.A.F.F. Bots taking up multiple jobs, there are many variants of them, with each having a different appearance. All S.T.A.F.F. hold the same base of being a humanoid robot with a large tower with wheels as their equivalent to legs. The default S.T.A.F.F. have a white & blue color scheme with orange painted-on cheeks and buttons. Their torsos are decorated to look like a buttoned-up shirt and have the word "STAFF" written on the back. Wires are exposed connecting their arms to their torsos. Finally, they have small triangular makeup underneath their black eyes.
S.T.A.F.F. appearance varies among the different types of S.T.A.F.F., but most follow this color-scheme and all but one follow the same base-model. Mop S.T.A.F.F. are the only S.T.A.F.F. Bots that don't change design at all.
Most S.T.A.F.F. are passive animatronics, however some types of S.T.A.F.F. Bots have different mechanics than others. While some of these mechanics aren't inherently aggressive, some are. Only one type of S.T.A.F.F. bot is capable of killing you, while the rest of the aggressive S.T.A.F.F. types simply alert animatronics to your location.
Mop S.T.A.F.F. are normal S.T.A.F.F. Bots with mops and brooms. They are commonly seen with Wet Floor Bots or other Mop S.T.A.F.F. Unlike other aggressive S.T.A.F.F. types, they do not actively hunt down the player, rather they will stare if the player gets too close, and sound an alarm if the player gets closer.
Security S.T.A.F.F. are the most abundant S.T.A.F.F. the player will encounter, as they roam around almost every area in the facility. These S.T.A.F.F. have the same colors of the base S.T.A.F.F., but hold flashlights and wear a black cap that says "SECURITY" on it. These S.T.A.F.F.'s shoulder-pads and their lower torso are all painted black, and their chest holds a small star-logo that reads "Security Staff". Unlike most S.T.A.F.F., their eyes glow.
Security S.T.A.F.F. patrol the many areas of the Pizzaplex with flashlights. Getting caught in their light, or simply running into one, will cause the S.T.A.F.F. Bot to jumpscare the player before letting them go and sounding an alarm. Their alarm will continue to go off as long as the player is in their light.
Map Bot is a neutral S.T.A.F.F. Bot who expands the Map on the player's Faz-Watch. They are only encountered twice in the game; once when first entering the atrium, and once right after Moon kidnaps Glamrock Freddy. Map Bot will jumpscare the player when they get too close before offering them a map. Map Bot looks like a normal S.T.A.F.F. bot, however their torso is yellow with a large lowercase "i" on it, and they wear a pair of glasses and a light blue sun-hat. They also wear a small pouch around their waist filled with maps.
Party S.T.A.F.F. are special S.T.A.F.F. bots that guard the different attractions in the atrium, not letting the player unless they have a party pass or a ticket for that specific attraction. These S.T.A.F.F. are purple and white in coloration with pink accents. On their right arms, they have a large scanner for passes and tickets. After giving a Party S.T.A.F.F. a pass or ticket, they will dance while confetti shoots out before allowing the player to enter.
The Nightmarionne S.T.A.F.F. are a group of aggressive S.T.A.F.F. bots found in below the location in the trash-tunnels. These variants are much dirtier, and duller in color due to being abandoned. Their faces have tears and a large toothy smile drawn on them, their lower arms have black stripes drawn on them, and they all have the words "In Your Dreams" written on their chests.
These S.T.A.F.F. are unique in the sense that they hold multiple different mechanics, with most being dressed as the Security S.T.A.F.F., and others being stuck in the walls of the trash area. If the player falls down the pit in the trash tunnels, they'll be killed by a large group of S.T.A.F.F. These S.T.A.F.F. also replace all the normal Security S.T.A.F.F. in the Vanny & Princess Quest endings.
The Sewer S.T.A.F.F. Bot is a lone Security S.T.A.F.F. who was put in front of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Place to guard it. Due to being underground for so long, it has deteriorated, with its endoskeleton face now showing due to the large chunk of its mask being missing. The S.T.A.F.F. Bot is also covered in moss, rust and dirt. Due to it being the only animatronic down there, its security alert doesn't alert anything to the player.
Alien S.T.A.F.F. are aggressive S.T.A.F.F. Bots exclusive to Fazer Blast. They look identical to normal S.T.A.F.F., but wear a green helmet with alien antenna, and hold Fazerblasters. They roam around Fazer Blast and shoot at the player when seeing them. When shot with the Fazerblaster, they explode. An older version of the Alien Bots was colored entirely green in coloration, covered in red triangles & have large black eyes. It is unclear as to why they were later replaced by normal S.T.A.F.F. Bots wearing helmets.
Driver Assist Bot
Driver Assist S.T.A.F.F. are S.T.A.F.F. Bots exclusive to Roxy's Raceway. They are the only S.T.A.F.F. to not have the tower-base for legs, as they are meant to be connected to the go-karts in Roxy's Raceway. They hold purple and red accents, and have a yellow & black crash-test dummy texture on the sides of their faces. On their chest, they have "Roxy's Raceway" painted on. The one used for the mission wears a Roxy-themed helmet.
These bots are special, as only two are ever seen, being a broken one and the repaired version. Gregory must repair a broken Driver Assist's head to put on the in-tact one, as he is too short to drive the go-kart himself. To do this, the player must take the head to a repair room in the Dance Hall, take it back to Roxy's Raceway, and attach the head to the S.T.A.F.F. Bot. Doing this will allow the player to decommission Roxanne.
Chef S.T.A.F.F. are S.T.A.F.F. Bots that wear a chef's coat, chef's hat and a purple ascot. Their base and coat are extremely messy and stained, likely because of pizza sauce. The player can actually control a Chef S.T.A.F.F. Bot in a minor minigame where the player must zoom around a kitchen and make a pizza to lure Chica away from them.
Minor S.T.A.F.F. Bots
There are many S.T.A.F.F. that don't do anything throughout the location other than stand around and do their regular jobs rather than have a unique mechanic.
Caddy Bots are S.T.A.F.F. Bots exclusive to Monty's Gator Golf. They look identical to normal S.T.A.F.F., but wear a green apron, green plaid golf caps with a red bulb on top, and carry a green and purple golf-club bag on their back.
Attendant Bots, also called Circus Baby Bots in the files, are S.T.A.F.F. Bots that work in the Ice Cream parlor, and are decorated to look like Circus Baby. The majority of their body is painted red with orange highlights, with the only white on their body being located on their forearms, hands and heads. Finally, they have small eyelashes around their eyes and two small pigtails on their head.
Fry Cook Bots are S.T.A.F.F. Bots that work in some kitchen areas alongside Chef S.T.A.F.F. They look identical to normal S.T.A.F.F., however they wear a light blue shirt with a pink collar, a white apron and a fry cook hat with a white and pink checkered pattern. The backs of their shirts have a pink Pizzaplex logo on them.
Instructor Bot is a S.T.A.F.F. Bot who serves as the rules instructor for Fazer Blast. They wear a large laser-tag vest and helmet, and hold a Fazerblaster. They stay up on a stage informing the player on the rules of Fazer Blast and how to put on their equipment properly.
Comedian S.T.A.F.F. is a S.T.A.F.F. Bot that stays in the Fazbear Theater at all times, telling jokes on-stage. He wears a blue vest and a bowler hat, and has eyebrows underneath said hat. He also holds a microphone. In-game however, Comedy Bot doesn't actually have his unique appearance, rather appears as a simple default S.T.A.F.F. Bot.
Server Bots are S.T.A.F.F. Bots that serve food to people within the various restaurants. They wear a red, yellow, blue and orange striped shirt with small white name-tags that say "Staff", and they also wear a light purple and red cap with a red and blue propeller on it, as well as an orange burger. These S.T.A.F.F. used to have a different appearance, as in the tech-demon trailer they were shown to be normal S.T.A.F.F. Bots but with pink accents and a sombrero.
Nanny Bots are female S.T.A.F.F. Bots that wear purple dresses and blue wigs. They hold purple and red accents. They have thick eyelashes and also wear small blue earrings.
Magician Bots are S.T.A.F.F. Bots that are dressed as magicians. They wear a large top hat with a red ribbon, and they also wear a black tuxedo with a cape. The inside of the tuxedo is colored red, and the collar of it is colored light blue. Finally, they wear a large red bowtie.
The Magician Bot, Nanny Bot and Server Bots actually don't appear anywhere in-game outside of one location. When leaving the sewers, the player enters the S.T.A.F.F. Silo, filled with Nightmarionne S.T.A.F.F. Bot heads and colored paper. Near the end of the room there is a dinner table set with five S.T.A.F.F. Bots, including the three mentioned, a headless default S.T.A.F.F. and a Circus Baby Bot.
Shattered S.T.A.F.F. Bots are a collection of props scattered around the parts & service area, and include beat-up and distorted S.T.A.F.F. bots. Most of the ones seen are mere parts & piles, but a few are fully-constructed bots. Unlike most other S.T.A.F.F. Bots, these ones never move, and simply sit in place as static props.
Within the files, there is data for five unused S.T.A.F.F. One is a S.T.A.F.F. Bot that has a test-dummy texture. It is unknown where this might've been used. Two of the unused S.T.A.F.F. are Sales Bot and Sentry Bot, who both have unused dialog but no models. The third unused S.T.A.F.F. was the Server Bot seen in the tech demo, with a sombrero & pink coloring. Finally, the last unused S.T.A.F.F. was a Mime Bot, who is colored with a pale blue & dark blue accents. It's torso is black & white striped with pink lines that act as painted-on suspenders, and it's cheeks & wires are also colored pink. It is unclear why any of these S.T.A.F.F. were cut, or what the purpose of some of them, like the Mime Bot, were.
- It's implied that there is a lack of human employees within the facility, as the S.T.A.F.F. Bots are seen as baristas & waiters, and even have their own backrooms dedicated to them.
- Additionally, they hold the jobs of night patrol guards despite the presence of Vanessa, hinting more that the Pizzaplex has very few human staff.
- It is unknown what the acronym "S.T.A.F.F." stands for.
- Though it is likely that the two F's stand for "Freddy Fazbear".
- The Nightmarionne S.T.A.F.F.'s appearances are more akin to Nightmarionne specifically, as the tears are colored black, there are no painted-on cheeks and their smile has multiple small teeth.
- It is unclear on if this will have lore implications within the game, or just a fun reference.
- The only S.T.A.F.F. to have a lethal jumpscare are the group of Nightmarionne S.T.A.F.F. in the pit.
- The other S.T.A.F.F. variants that can jumpscare the player simply alert the Glamrocks to them or, in Map Bot's case, do nothing at all.
- Many believed that the Nightmarionne S.T.A.F.F. Bots were known as the "Alpha Z Group" due to their initial teaser in Freddy & Friends.
- It is still unknown as to what the phrase "Alpha Z Group" means.
- It was noted by Ray McCaffrey that Map Bot caused more bugs than any other character, leading Ray to jokingly request that Map Bot be thrown into a volcano.
- Due to the S.T.A.F.F. Bots being voiced via text-to-speech, the credits jokingly claim that they are voiced by themselves.
- Many believe the table of five S.T.A.F.F. in the S.T.A.F.F. Silo are meant to represent the Afton Family, with the Magician Bot representing William Afton, the Nanny Bot representing a potential "Mrs. Afton", the Circus Baby Bot representing Elizabeth Afton, the Server Bot representing Michael Afton and the Headless Bot representing the Bite Victim from FNaF 4.
- The Server Bot being linked to Michael is likely due to Michael being the only Afton to be confirmed to work as a staff member in Freddy Fazbear's.
- This remains purely speculation, especially due to a Mrs. Afton never existing in any prior games.
- When including the unused S.T.A.F.F. Bots, there is a total of 27 different variants of S.T.A.F.F. bots.
- It is possible that the unused lines for "Sentry Bot" were meant for the various Security Bots.
- This is especially likely when one of their lines has the bot refer to themselves as a "Security Officer".
